Wingspan: 15.5"
Battery: 150mah 2S
Receiver: Orange micro 4 channel
Fan: Custom built 20mm EDF (3D printed on a Michelangelo) using a 0703 outrunner and clipped 3 blade micro quad-copter propeller.

Maiden was a little squirrely!

After a mod the next flights were much better!

My thoughts were for it to be a replacement for jetex motors since the rules are quite strict Down Under, so a jetex plan seemed the logical choice. I settled on a DH108 Swallow designed by Steve Bage. It came in at 50g inc. battery.

I was working on a 20mm EDF fan unit some time ago and although the fan was done, I had no jet to put it in.
